Data and Spatial Analytics

Planning and Policy making is all about making informed decisions. Urban plans have always included maps and other visuals to better our understanding of cities, regions, and their surroundings. Transportation and Environmental planners generate and use data to develop plans for infrastructure and to better understand the impacts of growth on the environment. With the growing availability of data about both urban and natural environments planners and policy makers also must be data scientists. Spatial analytic methods are powerful tools in the visioning process that can help plan for urban regions and their impacts in the face of climate change.
